Vibrant, compact, and built with the true precision only gifted artisans can provide, the Breedlove USA Orgeon Concertina Acoustic Electric Guitar is ready to make a statement! This smaller body guitar delivers similar high-energy sound as the other Oregon Series instruments, and as a ‘12 fret to the body’ guitar, it has an action that makes it fun to play. With the bridge positioned in the center of the lower bout, the modes deliver the overtones with surprising warmness. You simply will not want to set this Concertina down!
By far the most commonly used top wood, Sitka spruce has an exceptional strength to weight ratio. Growing in southeast Alaska’s temperate rainforest, it grows less than six inches a year, fighting its way through the dense old-growth forests. Growing straight and up to 300 feet tall, the age of the trees used by Breedlove are 400-600 years old. Breedlove never harvests one of these magnificent trees, instead working with Alaska Specialty Woods to salvage blown down, dead trees from the forest floor. Coupling old-growth Sitka with the beautiful Myrtlewood results in instruments that far surpass traditional guitars in sound. Each Oregon Series guitar is factory equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and comes with a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case.
You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove.
